With every fire extinguisher test and inspection we systematically check the extinguisher’s condition. Involving a complete check of all mechanical parts and look for any damage, any broken seals, if there is correct cylinder pressure, we offer hydrostatic testing and offer new inspection tags after service.

- Check for missing or broken safety seals or tamper indicators
- Examine the extinguisher for obvious signs of corrosion, leakage or clogged discharge nozzle.
